New option makes debut on fleet of NASCAR® haulers
DAYTONA BEACH, FLORIDA…Truck enthusiasts can capture a glimpse of a new interior chrome accessory package for the Freightliner Coronado at this year’s NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series. The Coronado is this year’s official hauler for teams including Evernham Motorsports, Penske Racing South and Chip Ganassi Racing. The first race of the season, the Daytona 500 (Feb. 19, NBC, 1:30 p.m.), marks the first time customers will be able to view the new chrome accessory package on an in-service Coronado vehicle.
The new interior bright package, also available on the Freightliner Trucks Classic, Classic XL and FLD SD models, is a factory-installed option designed to enhance the appearance of the vehicle and increase resale value for the customer.
The interior bright chrome package is made from durable, quality materials and includes switch panels, sleeper control panel trim, dump valve trim, mirror and power window switch trim, trailer brake cover, door kick panel and shift cover, along with other dash trim.
“NASCAR races are a great venue to showcase the new interior chrome accessory package,” said Jonathan Randall, Director of Product Marketing, Freightliner Trucks. “Race teams and fans share our enthusiasm for vehicles that run smart and look good in the process.” In addition to improving appearance, Randall said the interior bright package also increases resale value.
